Myron Lindsay (Bud) Good (October 25, 1923 – February 26, 1999) was an American physicist, a professor of physics at the University of Wisconsin–Madison and Stony Brook University.[1][2][3]

Good's research interests spanned a broad range of topics in particle physics. He did important work on muon-catalyzed fusion, Kaon regeneration, strange particles, diffraction of particle beams, W boson phenomenology, and particle accelerator technology. Outside of particle physics, he also developed a theory of pulsars as rotating neutron stars.[1]

Good did undergraduate studies at the University at Buffalo and Cornell University, and received his Ph.D. in 1951 from Duke University for research on beta decay. After working as a research scientist at the University of California, Berkeley, he became a faculty member at the University of Wisconsin in 1959, and moved to Stony Brook in 1967. At Stony Brook, he headed the experimental particle physics group; he retired in 1992.[1]
